FSU University Chorale

University Chorale

Mr. Scott Rieker, Director

The University Chorale, 60-75 members strong, performs large and small choral works from various styles and periods of music. They frequently perform works that are both a cappella and accompanied, often combining forces with various size orchestras to present major works from the choral repertoire. Noted for their diversity in repertoire, this ensemble performs both on campus and around the Mid-Atlantic region.

The University Chorale often collaborates with other FSU Choral and Instrumental Ensembles, faculty, students, and local organizations including upcoming collaborations with the Cumberland Choral Society and McDaniel College Choir.

The University Chorale has also been instrumental in the growth of music students at Frostburg State University through collaboration with Advanced Conducting students, students have the opportunity to work with and learn from each other each spring as part of the ensemble's ongoing emphasis on expressive performance through singing.

They have performed a number of large works including Choral Fantasia, Op. 80 (Beethoven), Requiem masses of Mozart, Fauré, and Verdi, Ein Deutsches Requiem (Brahms), Carmina Burana (Orff), and selections of Messiah (Handel).
